A filmmaker named Jamie Livingston started taking a Polaroid photo every day in 1979, and kept going until he died in 1997. There is a blog post explaining the story here, and the original photos are here.

I found this a while ago. I hope it wasn't on Venganza. :paranoid:

That is Kewl... in an obsessive compulsive kinda way :paranoid:

What is TRULY amazing to me (As a former Pornaroid camera owner Circa 1972) is that the damned photos have survived at all. All my pornaroid pics have faded colour and in most cases the entire pic has faded.

My mother has a large collection of Pornaroid pictures from back in the day contributed to by from various family members. Most of them have shown only minimal fading, not that the quality was the best in the first place, and she only keeps them in a shoe box. The wonders of old-school technology.

Interview with bully beater and internet hero Casey Heynes.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

This may have been posted on this forum before, but is brilliant, it has to be watched at least twice.

Years ago I worked for a lady that raised Welsh Cardigan Corgies and the puppies were the best part of the whole job. :love:
